Bandits of Bourgueil
Our car as it was found this morning
Unfortunately our overnight stay in Bourgueil was rendered rather less pleasant as a bandit or a group of bandits broke into our car overnight presumably in the hope of finding some valuables. Fortunately we had removed anything of value from the car, so the thief or thieves gained nothing by breaking the driver's window.
We were not alone in having our car damaged as in all ten cars around Bourgueil were broken into last night.
We were very impressed by the Bourgueil Gendarmerie who searched carefully for fingerprints and what they found will hopefuly help them to catch the Bourgueil bandits! We were particularly impressed by Gendarme Sandra Drogon not only by the careful search she made of our vehicle for clues but also by how professionally and courteously she took our statement making sure that we fully understood the process.
